High Calorie Giveaway

A 500th post giveway on a quilting/crafting blog is usually something crafty - patterns, fabric, notions, a finished project.

And this giveaway might eventually include one of those type of items. Heck - it WILL include some of those items.

But it is going to start with a cookbook - not just any cookbook but one that was being sold by a local medical office as a fundraiser for a recent American Cancer Society Relay for Life event.

It's your typical local group produced cookbook - lots of recipes your mom, neighbor, aunt, husband, or the lady at all the local potlock suppers might have in their stash. Some you may already have.

There IS a recipe for peanut butter pie!!!

But it is so much more! It is the effort of a few people, giving of their time to create something that can make a difference, however small, in the lives of so many affected by cancer.

Not just the patients, but the families -the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, aunts, spouses, grandparents, co-workers and friends that are affected every time a diagnosis has to be made.

Entry into this giveaway is simple.

For ONE entry - just leave a comment on this post. No need to be a follower.

For FIVE extra entries - please post a message or image on your blog with a link to the online giving page of the American Cancer Society or any other cancer research charity of your choice. Post me a message with the corresponding link, please. (if you don't have a blog - but are on Facebook, post there instead).

and for TEN extra entries - please consider making a gift of your own - in any amount - to ACS or any other cancer research charity. Just post me a message that you did - no need to tell me how much.

I'll take entries until my Mom finishes her current round of chemo... I will have to get back to you on that exact date.

...for Mom ... because there would not be 500 posts here without her love and support.

Wow, a real PB Pie recipe? Mmmmm, I'd love to have that! I too am a supporter of the ACS b/c my dad is a prostate cancer survivor. Prayers to your mom as she continues through her chemo.
